"Very good hotel"
A really great place to stay. Friendly and very service-minded staff (adhere to strict no-tips policy). Room nice, quiet and big (stayed in Executive Business Deluxe Double). Great executive lounge with a nice and varied selection of food and drinks. Lounge a little crowded during peak hours, but it was always possible for us to get a seating. Easy to get around from hotel. You can walk or take shuttle bus to nearby shopping malls etc. No subway near by but not really a problem - just use the shuttle. A great hotel - recommended.
Club-level room was comfortable and clean. Lounge was roomy and smart and snacks and drinks and their variety was excellent. Staff was polite and helpful. Price according to level was a bit too high. Transport from Hotel to Myengdong and Dongdaemung was good. Near the Hotel was shopping center and it was full of things to buy, but be ready for high prices
"Fabulous Buffet "
Stopped in to have their fabulous buffet lunch. Great selection foods, well worth the price. (About $23. US). They don't serve dinner, but have yours mid day. Get there early as it is quite popular. There is a bar as well.
"A Most Magnificent Hotel"
The Shilla Seoul is perfect, and I do not use that word lightly. The hotel combines Korean tradition, hospitality, and technology in perfect harmony. I need for nothing in this hotel because its staff has already thought of everything I could possibly want. Everything just feels simultaneously planned and curated. My room window overlooked the city from the West, and each morning the sunrise would overwhelm my room in a burst of color. Breakfast overlooks a quiet waterfall, and the splendor of food and drink available borders on decadent. The fitness center provides digital lockers and exercise clothes, and the adjacent sauna is not to be missed. Transportation is brought to the front of the hotel with but a wave of the hand. And when I return to the hotel after a day of work or exploring the city, everything is in its place and as it should be in my room. As someone who appreciates a clean environment, I applaud a hotel staff that take pride in their work. I would not hesitate to recommend The Shilla Seoul to anyone that wishes to experience Korea at a level (I can only imagine) once reserved for royalty.
"staff very helpful and accommodating"
rooms are smaller than some of the newer hotels in town but we were luckily upgraded to a bigger room in the corner. hotel amenities and service are very good. Seoul is not a tourist ridden sophisticated mega international city - and for a hotel to strive world class hospitality and service to this level in this city is quite impressive. I give them credit for it.
